Send Scripts and Manage Data via Wireless neoVI

You can remotely send a data logger configuration or script to your neoVI PLASMA through Wireless neoVI, a website that provides fleet management and data management to a fleet of vehicles. You can get the latest GPS location, automatic data downloads, and automatic export/analysis of data in the format you require.

Remote Connectivity and GPS Location

The neoVI PLASMA provides several ways of connecting remotely:

  • Internal 3G data modem
  • Wi-Fi
  • Ethernet (for connection to external 3G modem or wired network)

All of these allow for data download and remote fleet management. In addition, the neoVI PLASMA has a 5 Hz GPS accurate to within 3 meters, which can be used both as a fleet management tool and within a data logging session for correlating locations to your test data.

The Power of Scripting – CoreMini

There are few, if any, data loggers that can capture as many types of data as the neoVI PLASMA, and even fewer that can log them all simultaneously. The neoVI PLASMA does this by using CoreMini – a proprietary executable that runs within the PLASMA’s VNET network adapter card. The script runs independently of the Android OS, and it’s highly flexible, allowing you to make requests, initiate network management and calibration sessions, and more.

VehicleScape DAQ Writes the Scripts for You!

The best thing about CoreMini scripts is you don’t have to learn how to write them! They are automatically generated within our Vehicle Spy software using the VehicleScape DAQ feature. VehicleScape DAQ provides an easy interface to load in your proprietary message databases, diagnostic databases, and CCP/XCP A2L files. Once loaded, it’s as simple as searching for your signal names, PIDs/DIDs/LIDs, and measurements. Then simply click on the Standalone Logging tab and configure your logging script. Set up pre-and post-triggers, sleep modes, multiple triggers and other parameters, then generate your script for download. VehicleScape is very versatile, and works in almost every situation. However, for those few times you may need something special, you can also access the generated scripts and add custom modifications.

VNET Modules – Multiple Network Adaptors within One neoVI PLASMA

The neoVI PLASMA comes standard with one FIRE2 VNET Module – a miniaturized version of our neoVI FIRE2 vehicle network interface. You can have up to three VNET Modules, supporting large numbers of CAN / CAN FD channels, FlexRay, analog and digital I/O, and more. Examples of configurations are:
  • 24 x CAN FDand 12 x LIN (3 FIRE2 VNETs)
  • 8 x CAN / CAN FD and 1 x FlexRay Network (1 FIRE2 VNET + 1 FlexRay VNET)
  • 8 x CAN / CAN FD and 7 x Differential Inputs (1 FIRE2 VNET + 1 AIN VNET)
This also allows for future expansion and re-configuration as your needs change.

Logging While Downloading from Massive On-Board Memory

With the aid of a proprietary Android application, data is uploaded without interrupting or slowing down your data acquisition. The neoVI PLASMA has an SD Card slot and allows for up to 128 GB high-speed SD cards. This enables you to capture on the order of hundreds of billions of messages! If you are automatically uploading data, this may not seem important. However, if you are in an area with no coverage or you have a network outage, you won’t have to worry about losing data.

Sleep Mode Options

The proprietary Android application also provides sleep management, which works with the neoVI PLASMA to sleep when needed, upload data before sleep, and wake whenever network traffic begins. Many options are available:
  • Upload all data since last power-on before sleep
  • Upload all pending data before sleep
  • Upload pending data when network signal returns
  • Instant Wake-up – Capture even the very first message on dual-wire CAN networks
  • Several sleep modes with current draw < 1 mA
  • Zero current draw mode with optional backup battery
